Assignment: Visit Escuela Primaria Isaac Arriaga
We woke up early and went to the large elementary school in town (Escuela Primaria Isaac Arriaga). The students were really excited to see us. The teachers, cuates from Papalote and scientists from Minnesota were all there and eager to share stories and questions about the monarch. Students from the morning session went out into the courtyard for snack. It was very crowded, students were calling out "Frankie, Frankie, Frankie." The students were eating tortillas and drinking colored liquid out of big plastic tubes. As all of this was happening monarchs were flying all around the courtyard. Students were laughing and talking to each other about the monarch leaving and heading north with us. Back upstairs, two classrooms were still making balancing butterflies. The students showed us butterflies that they carried in the Monarch Festival Parade the day before we visited. They sang a cheer for us.
